Very informative and well done presentation of Mobile’s history. Appreciated that they did not white wash African American history

This wonderful downtown museum was a delightful place to come explore on our trip to Mobile, Alabama. Located basically across the street from the rebuilt Fort Condé, it added historical information and context from before and after the Forts place in history as well as history of the Fort not covered in the replicas information. I thought the museum was a must see for the historian or even just a casual fan of history.
Nice museum with lots of history. Learned a lot about the area. Really enjoyed the special exhibit on Mobile. Didn't see a booklet with museum layout- we just wandered around to see everything. There is an interactive area for kids. Didn't make it to the fort as we ran out of time, but it is included in the price of admission.
Enjoyed this Museum very much! We had the entire place to ourselves. There is a lot of different things to see. Nothing for children here.
We came Sunday June 5th, the first Sunday of every month is free to the public. We saw lots of families with young children, senior citizens, tourists, locals, everybody. A tour of Fort Conde is also included. We enjoyed the exhibits, the Viking Exhibit goes on only a few more days, to June 12, 20022, see it before it leaves. We also saw a nautical themed exhibit, there is an exhibit for kids, but we skipped that. Also, exhibitions of old war uniforms, Mardi Gras costumes, and pageant dresses, including a pink cape worn by Diane Sawyer in 1964.
We really enjoyed this visit! We try to learn about a place / city when we visit, and this was perfect - from the original inhabitants 10,000 years ago, through colonial inhabitants, world wars, and recent race relations. There was a small kids' area for our boys to run off some energy and play. Mardi Gras, yellow fever, local inventors - a lot was covered! And just enough info on each topic that we learned a lot but didn't get overwhelmed or exhausted. There was a special exhibit on the costumes of "Downton Abbey" when we were there (February 2023), which my husband and I enjoyed a lot! The Fort Condé reproduction, located across the street, is included with your admission. It took us about half an hour to go through. Note that it also closes half an hour earlier than the museum. We arrived at 2 and left as the museum closed at 5, but we are very thorough museum attendees.
